I am in a situatuon and don't know what to do. My best freind has a 6 year old who is very .... I don't even know what word to use. He hits, lies, takes toys away from other kids, spits on u, torchers other kids who r around. Anyway, my kids no longer want to be around this child. They beg not to go to their house. My freind wants to spend time together and wants the kids to play. I don't know what to do. Plz don't bash, I am not trying to talk bad about the kid, I'm just telling the truth.

Easy, don't put your kids in that situation. Tell your friend why. Sounds like that kid needs to corrected.

tell your friend that your children just dont want to play with her's

or you can make up an excuse for everytime she asks like "oh we have to do shopping" or "we have a previous appointment maybe next time"

I don't know, I am in the same situation with a friend. She has 2 kids that are horrible. She never disciplines them and it's really frustrating to be around them. They are also very destructive so when they come to our house they are constantly breaking things. I have just started making excuses for why we can't play. It was easier in the summer cause we could meet at parks and stuff. I think we will probably just be "sick" a lot this winter.

My mom was friends with a lady that's daughter was that way. I was stuck dealing with her daughter and I hated it. She was so mean and nasty. Do not make your kids suffer for your friendship.

Thanks for the advice. Its getting worse. I don't want my kids to have to suffer so I'm starting with the excuses also.

You have to just tell her the truth, in the long term it could be good for both her and her kids.

If you want to continue a friendship with her, you can meet for lunch or coffee when the 6 year old is at school.  I've had friendships end because I didn't want their kids around mine.  It happens.

Has her son been seen by a specialist, psychiatrist, or anything?  Is this an issue she is working on?  If she is working on it be kind and help her through it.  If she is in denial and acts like nothing is wrong then you need to be straight with her and tell her what is going on.
